The ingredients for this beautiful 'True Historic' axe start with a solid mahogany back, plain carved maple top and solid mahogany neck. A vintage nitro-cellulose finish also allows this guitar to age and wear beautifully, leaving the owner with an authentic look, sound and feel.
VOS stands for Vintage Original Spec and thats exactly what this guitar is! A faithfull reproduction of one of the best guitars of all time!
If we tried to make a lift of great players who have used this guitar, then you might find yourself reading for quite a while. Jimmy Page to Eric Clapton, Mike Bloomfield and Pete Townshend to name just a few can all be seen throughout the years as having used the Les Paul as their instrument of choice.
With the True Historic range, Gibson Custom commits to a fanatic level of detail accuracy to bring you as close as possible to owning an original 1958 Gibson Les Paul. A double-carved and hand-sanded top and neck, hand wet-sanded finish, hand-filed rolled fingerboard binding, and plastics replicated from molecular-level analysis of original vintage parts headline only a few of the extensive and obsessive details found in each of the very limited number of True Historic 1958 Les Pauls offered. Add a pair of superbly accurate Custom Bucker pickups, re-created from precise study and measurement of original PAFs, and sounds as amazing as it looks and feels. You simply can't get closer to the real thing... than the real thing.
